. caller: good morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist party of russia. i think we need to step back and understand many people in this country see the political system as broken. others -- elizabeth warren -- have spoken house some money have seen the system rigged against them. there is a few that those who dislike government for the past 40 years have a stake in diminishing the reputation of government, of congress. i would argue that we have seen a movement in these last 40 years to debase role of government. callback and read the book on lyndon johnson. the use or abuse of the filibuster has been used or abuse in the last 10 days or three years more than once in the 1960's 197's combined by the republicans. the president has an opportunity to come back if the republicans de
. >> thousands of progressives. >> saying where is that? i do think on the next one, we talk about expectations. mitt romney is this great debater. he buried the president in the first debate. if president obama even does pretty well, if he does start to fight back, you know the press will come along and others will come along and say the president's back. he was unprepared for the first time. i'll be interested to see how long this first debate carries mitt romney. if the president has a good second debate, does it wipe out the first one? i don't know. >> i have a theory why that happened. it wasn't that he didn't have the facts at his command. it was that strategically, they said going in so much, you're here, he's there. there's none of this. there's none of this. when he talks, you don't look at him. when you talk, you don't look at him. you don't even respond to him. he's not there. and that's what translated to the pathetic performance and also what seemed to not have the facts at his hands. i think it was an overarching no-engagement strategy. these were simple facts. these were simple r
of questions about obama and his personal life and his youth that they do not focus on. host: next up, greg on our line for independents. caller: i have an interesting take on the spirit we have always had some type of media bias by the people who control the media -- i have an interesting take on this. we have always had some type of media bias by the people who control the media. we have always had that kind of control and that type of influence, and we should probably work on what the powerful people are doing and not one a president, because he has a very limited field of power, is able to control -- not what a president is able to control. guest: as someone who has gotten into the white house media room, a day passed does get you in the doorway. i thought jeff cannon's question was embarrassing because it sounded like he was asking the president to agree with him that democrats are morons -- i questionjeff gannon's was embarrassing. anybody who is a reporter wants to ask a question that is supposed to elicit information. when i had questions to ask ari fleischer, it would be how they t
is about to the next 40 years. there are 100 reasons to deny barack obama for more years and office. none are more important than defending the freedoms that make this country great. these are the freedoms we have to fight for. these are the freedoms at stake in this election. fight. do everything you can between now and election day. fight for these kids and grandkids here today. [cheers and applause] fight for our soldiers who put it all on the line defending our freedom overseas so they can come home to an america as free as when they left it. [cheers and applause] send a message to the national news media. their coverage of this race is a national disgrace. [cheers and applause] you know, we have a message for cnn, abc, cbs. you will not decide the outcome of this election. we, the people, will decide the outcome of this election. we live in a country that is getting harder to recognize every day. led by a president who mocks our values, be littles' our faith, and is threatened by our freedoms. you know it and i know it. barack obama is another washington, d.c. politician who will say
be getting tougher for gop challenger mitt romney. first to iowa. president obama is 49% to mitt romney's 5%. >>> and from the columbia dispatch--this has surrogates from both parties sangled today over who's better equipped to guide the economy over the next four years. >> the president hay has created 4 million new manufacturing jobs. he says he's going to reduce the debt. doesn't say how' goegsing to do it. let's be fair here, governor romney has laid out a vision and a direction for this country. let's hold the president to the same standard as well. >> first of all, we have a deficit plan, it's got health care savings. romney doesn't have a deficit plan. he's got a plan to cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires. he's got a 5 trilli$5 trillion. -- another $2 trillion in defense spending. >> just three days into the first presidential debate, meanwhile mitt romney is off to the trail. we have two reports, we begin with nbc's peter alexander, he's with the romney campaign in boston, with a good morning to you, peter. what are you hearing about all the debate preps today. he o'clock n
'm not up for hire, but thank you very much. great pleasure. thank you. up next, new reports say romney's advisers are divided over whether to attack president obama over libya or stay focused on the economy? this as the obama administration is still under fire over its response to the deadly attacks in libya and over security concerns at the consulate even before the attack. former state department official joel ruben will join me live. first, there's a lot going on today. here are things we thought you should know. florida's republican party is filing an a elections fraud complaint after finding suspicious voter forms in even more counties in the state. as many as ten is the new number. the forms are tied to the strategic allied consulting, a firm hired by the republican party in that state to register voters. the firm has been fired. it has also done voter drives in colorado, nevada, north carolina and virginia. the white house says a cyber attack on its computer system never posed any threat to the classified information. officials say the attack was ultimately foiled and no data wa
that's important. so i think that any obama supporter who really loves the president is a little worried that maybe sometimes he may speak longer than the evening news and the morning news the next day is able to cover in full. >> as someone who's moderated four debates with him can testify to that. congressman, to you, what's the biggest weakness governor romney has. i've moderated four debates with him as well. >> there's so much material to attack the president on -- >> no. not the president. romney's biggest weakness. >> well, i think part of the challenge is how do you succinctly get to that and at the same time when you only have 90 seconds or 120 seconds to answer a question then also be able to share your vision and your compassion to the voters that are watching at home. to be able to contrast the president's record and his vision, share with that in a compassionate way, that's challenging to do in 120 seconds. >> here's a big challenge that the president has, bill. look at this. likely voters we asked who will win the presidential debate? 56% said the president. 32% sai
by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> paul ryan reacting very quickly. mitt romney reacting very quickly to biden's comments that the middle class over the past four years, four years being the obama administration, have been "buried." >> first of all, wolf, the romney campaign really has nothing to say in 24 hours. this is paul ryan who on fox news on sunday couldn't explain the romney/ryan tax plan. not because it's complicated, because the math don't add up. and for the middle class it hurts the middle class. it digs the middle class into the dead years of 2000 to 2010. >> how problemmatic? >> the republicans have nothing but gaffes. they love when joe biden speaks because for some reason they like to take those comments and blow them out of proportion flt i just think it's nonsense. if they want to talk about joe biden and who will help the middle class, that's an argument i think the democrats would like to have. >> there will be a lot of discussion of joe biden's remarks right now. >> donna's right. we like to talk about joe biden because he gives us a
are gearing up for next week's big event. wednesday's first presidential debate between the two contenders. both sides are working hard to shape expectations. beth myers sent out a memo that read in part . . . and obama campaign senior strategy david axelrod wrote, and i quote . . . for more on the expectations gain i'm joined by brent brent coburn. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> eliot: the expectation game, could we agree for the moment they are both really smart guys and we're hopefully going to have a good debate about substance. >> that's our hope. the debates a great opportunity for the american people tune in and the candidates tell their stories. that's what we plan to do. we hope the romney campaign comes prepared to do the same thing. beside his technical -- technical skills as a debater, we hope he finally comes to the table with some details. >> eliot: i think the american public and my perspective in all of this is no mystery, i share that there has been no specificity, the week there was supposed to be specificity it was swept away wi
's going continue to struggle on the front. i think the obama campaign going in to the debates, doesn't the burden here. but probably would, you know, should talk about what the next four years will be like, and i expect that that will happy during the debate. but i said that here. because i'm talking tactically here. the challenger has the burden. we have a history with barack obama. we have a sense what he's done. we have a sense what he's like and what he will do. when you're the challenger, you have to say why you will be cimpt. and obama did that in 2008, and that's the thing that romney is going have -- i think will be need to do. we are evaluating one of the president as the champion, so to speak in boxing terms. we are evaluating one of the challenger. if you don't play the role of the challenge netter minds of people, well, then it's hard to imagine you'll play the role of the champ well. that's my own sort of two cents on that. >> we all know that the words we use are very important. on the campaign that you worked on, how did the candidate choose which keywords or catch pha
tax cuts. it also faces the spending cuts of 130 -- unless president obama does something about it. leading up to what you might do next session, do think those cuts should be allowed to expire? if not, how would to modify those plans? >> the fiscal clef is a very serious issue. -- cliff is a very serious issue. sequestration is indiscriminate and arbitrary across-the-board cuts and would devastate our economy. it is not the right prescription. i support the president's's plan which is a balanced approach. we have twin challenges facing us. we need to reduce our debt bank and energize our economy. i think with investments in education and research, a middle-class, that is the solution. >> we are heading for a recession unless we do something. my opponent has been in congress for 14 years. the debt has gone from $6 trillion to $16 trillion. she has voted for a lot of those spending programs. she introduced programs to increase the spending. she is voting for 100 tax increases. what are we going to do in january? we have got to make sure we address the taxes, we can no longer afford
to practice our lives as we see fit. >> next, henry de sio, chief operating officer of the 2000 up on the campaign of former deputy assistant to president obama. california state university northridge, he discussed the 2008 election and how those lessons can be applied to this year's campaign. he also analyzed leadership, communication and the use of words and presidential campaigns. this is an hour and 15 minutes. [applause] >> all right. thank you very much. you okay with? well, thank you. this is something of a homecoming for me. as laurie said, i actually grew up until i was in the third grade, i lived in lakewood california. and i spent a lot of time in this area. this is a holiday place for me. all of my relatives actually lived from norwalk to be female, so every holiday for about two decades, this is where we came every christmas, thanksgiving, so forth. so it is a great honor to come back here. i'll tell you a little bit about myself. when i was in third grade, i move to three rivers california. anybody know or sequoia national park is? i lived in a town called three river
